Third In­dia-New Zealand ODI Shifted to Kan­pur from Luc­know

The Day After - - SPORTS SNIPPETS -

Kan­pur will host the third One Day In­ter­na­tional (ODI) cricket match be­tween In­dia and New Zealand in Oc­to­ber since the sta­dium in Luc­know is not up to the mark for an in­ter­na­tional match. The match, to be held on Oc­to­ber 29, was al­lot­ted to Ut­tar Pradesh Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion (UPCA) and ef­forts were made to have the match at Ekana In­ter­na­tional Cricket Sta­dium in Luc­know, which re­cently hosted Duleep Tro­phy matches. A lot of in­fras­truc­ture re­lated work such as the el­e­va­tors and out­side fence, is yet to com­plete.

“It’s not up to the mark. The ICC has not given clear­ance for host­ing the match, so Kan­pur will host the match,” BCCI CEO Rahul Johri told re­porters in Mum­bai. The se­ries will be­gin in Mum­bai on Oc­to­ber 22. The sec­ond match will be played in Pune on Oc­to­ber 25.
